PS 282 Green Zone

The Green Zone Gardening Program utilizes the gardens around PS 282 to foster education and learning.


Our school gardens provide students with a hands-on learning experience and activities that encourage healthy eating, teach responsibility and patience, develop math and science skills, relieve anxiety, highlight the importance of taking care of the environment and give kids a sense of confidence.


All students have the opportunity through out the school year to have regular lessons in the garden where they will learn how to grow their own food, care for and learn about animals and neighborhood trees and take direct action to improve their school garden and neighborhood environment by planting and nurturing native species.

The Green Zone is all made possible by outstanding parents and donations. If you would to assist the Green Zone program by purchasing from their wishlist please click here.
